Feedback: Gift wrapping courses

Training courses Arona Khan

“Arona was an invaluable resource to Selfridges when we launched our stunning new gift packaging.  She worked with a number of teams across the business from the creative team finalising the look of the product to the logistics department informing us what equipment we needed at till points.”

By far the most impactful intervention was the training that she rolled out across the stores.  She wrote a high quality, foolproof manual which she trained from and which remains at tills around the business.  The training itself was fun, interactive and successful.”
Caroline Darker, Learning & Development Manager, Selfridges & Co

“The day was fantastic and Arona really helped the group to grasp the tricky skills involved in the training. The sessions were Pacey and Positive and the Team Members gave me excellent feedback saying they had aquired a new skill they could really put into practice.”

“Many thanks for such a super course which I enjoyed very much.  I think your had the balance right – it was extremely well set up and nicely informal.  It was also good fun and there was certainly plenty of humour. My husband was most impressed  with my beautifully wrapped ‘gifts’.  The cellophane one caused him to say ‘it’s like Harrods’!”
